JOHN your the man! Keep them coming. WHAT SCANNER AND AT WHAT RESOLUTION DO YOU SCAN

I'm this close to buying a Motion Computing Tablet - but everytime I am just about to click the BUY button I stumbled across one of you AWESOME sketches.

I would assume you would scan high enough to send to printer for your sketchbooks?

Mikko said...

Hey Monster. Dont tease that little dude...

AHdez said...

A strong hug

Katie McDee said...

Loving how much character you get in your characters!

K McLeod said...

John Great designs, I love it when you post because it gives me insperation and I have noticed in my own designs I have been able to push them more with shapes I normally wouldnt think of. You and Stepn Silver have a real fluid look to your work that keeps me going. So thank you for pusing a artist along creativly.

Daniel Chappelle said...

Yes , Yes - Silver and Nevarez are the dynamic duo - indeed! Do you both use real media?

I'm trying to find a blogger who draws on a PC tablet - specifically - MotionComputings tablet.

Or any recomendations encouraged! Pro/Con!

I just hate scanning!

Dan

ps. John keep up the great work and when is your next book due out?

arash tirgari said...

Nice stuff as usual! Gotta get me a copy of your sketchbook...signed of course. :)

Lovely! They have such character to them.

Daniel Chappelle said...

Ok, so you don't use a PC TABLET (not Wacom thing, nor Cintiq - I mean the 'insert manufacturer name here' the type you draw on screen kinda thingy. ), nor does anyone reading your blog at the moment?

What kinda pen do you use? Some interviewer asked Andrés Segovia if they could play his guitar (as if the magic was the guitar itself) and Andrés said something to the effect of 'Nobody plays Segovia's guitar, except Segovia!"

And don't you hate scanning??? Has this been covered on this blog yet? The pain of scanning?

Brilliant work - I know there is no secret pen/tablet/software. It's just freakin' TALENT! Go Cat Go!

Mitch K said...

That long hair is beautiful! Man, I love the kids you draw -- they're so cute and hilarious! It's great to see some artwork!

arash tirgari said...

Hey John. Had been a while since I saw them Nevarez pencil marks. Drop a line when you got a chance.

the doodlers said...

What a cheery ogre! The girls are captivating. Neat contrast in characters. They look like they could be in the same story!

danG said...

great girl, what's your inspiration? and the composition on that monster board is great, the energy in the lines is superb. Now lets see some more! (sorry to be greedy)

Smook said...

The sketches of the kids are great, John. Nice.

Thomas Perkins said...

Those are really great expressions, Mr Nevarez. You rock, young fellow.

Cale Atkinson said...

Wow John Great stuff!
If I was rich I would hire someone to come in and stick a bunch of your sketches on my wall every morning. Who needs instant coffee when I could have instant inspiration!
Look forward to more!

Lee said...
